Un instante de la enorme nube interestelar de formación de estrellas Lupus 3, capturado por la Cámara de Energía Oscura de 570-megapíxeles desde el Observatorio de Cerro Tololo de NOIRLab, en Chile. La brillante región central de esta nube en expansión revela un par de jóvenes estrellas brotando desde sus capullos de polvo y gas para iluminar la nebulosa de reflexión conocida como Bernes 149. El contraste de luces entre estas regiones hacen de este objeto uno de los principales lugares para la investigación sobre formación estelar.
The massive, star-forming interstellar cloud Lupus 3 is captured with the 570-megapixel US Department of Energy-fabricated Dark Energy Camera at NSF’s NOIRLab’s Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile. The dazzling central region of this sprawling cloud reveals a pair of infant stars bursting from their natal cocoons of dust and gas to illuminate the reflection nebula known as Bernes 149. These contrasting regions make this object a prime target of research on star formation.

Over 3,000 generations of laboratory evolution, Georgia Tech researchers watched as their model organism, “snowflake yeast,” began to adapt as multicellular individuals. In new research, the team shows how snowflake yeast evolved to be physically stronger and more than 20,000 times larger than their ancestor. Their study is the first major report on the ongoing Multicellularity Long-Term Evolution Experiment (MuLTEE), which the team hopes to run for decades.

Un equipo de astrónomos registró la primera evidencia de una estrella moribunda, similar al Sol, devorando un exoplaneta, gracias a observaciones realizadas con el telescopio de Gemini Sur en Chile, que opera NOIRLab de NSF y Observatorio AURA. La evidencia irrefutable de este evento quedó registrada en un estallido largo y de baja energía de la estrella, un signo revelador de un planeta rozando la superficie de un Sol distante. Este proceso nunca visto antes puede indicar cómo será el destino final de la Tierra cuando nuestro propio Sol alcance el final de su vida en unos 5 mil millones de años más.
Astronomers using the Gemini South telescope in Chile, operated by NSF’s NOIRLab, have observed the first evidence of a dying Sun-like star engulfing an exoplanet. The “smoking gun” of this event was seen in a long and low-energy outburst from the star — the telltale signature of a planet skimming along a star’s surface. This never-before-seen process may herald the ultimate fate of Earth when our own Sun nears the end of its life in about five billion years.
Photosynthesis plays a crucial role in shaping and sustaining life on Earth, yet many aspects of the process remain a mystery. One such mystery is how Photosystem II, a protein complex in plants, algae and cyanobacteria, harvests energy from sunlight and uses it to split water, producing the oxygen we breathe. Now researchers from the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, together with collaborators from Uppsala University and Humboldt University and other institutions have succeeded in cracking a key secret of Photosystem II.
Cycads, a group of gymnosperms which can resemble miniature palm trees (like the popular sago palm houseplant) were long thought to be “living fossils,” a group that had evolved minimally since the time of the dinosaurs. Now, a well-preserved 80-million-year-old pollen cone discovered in California has rewritten scientific understanding of the plants.
An interdisciplinary team of Iowa State researchers find women experience cybersickness with virtual reality headsets more often than men. Their ongoing work explores why this difference exists and methods to help people adapt.
